Authorities responded to a call of five unconscious adults and all five were deceased by the time they arrived, he said.
One other adult and an infant survived the bizarre incident. Of the dead, it was three men and two women who did not survive.
Chief Clint Nichols said in a news conference Sunday night that substances that “could be described as illicit narcotics” were found inside the apartment. However, more testing needs to be done.
“If it was drugs, no one was able to get to a phone and call in a medical emergency,” said Nichols, calling the incident “very bad.”
McCoy said that it did not seem that the adults were victims of violence, however, he could not provide many details due to the ongoing investigation.
The apartment was tested by firefighters for hazardous gas, but it came back negative. It was also swept for hazardous substances before detectives were able to investigate.
Some neighbors said the victims died of fentanyl, however, nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
The child found inside the apartment was taken to the hospital but appears to be uninjured.
It’s unclear what the child or the sixth adult’s relation was to the victims that were found.
